Early Learning

Now offered at 9 different Quality First-rated locations, The Valley of the Sun YMCA Early Learning Program will help your young child develop essential social, physical, and intellectual building blocks.

Children are encouraged to exercise their creativity, develop new skills, work and play with peers, and develop positive relationships with adult role models. Activities include literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, arts, technology, and healthy habits. Our state-licensed preschool programs provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum designed to support the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth of your children. All preschool programs are licensed by the state of Arizona and accept DES and the Arizona Enrichment Center Scholarship.

Ever-present in all YMCA programming is the reinforcement of our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, ensuring a well-rounded and enriching experience for all.
